    Hi Jed. I think it is definitely worth including the clues, provided the puzzle is available in PDF format so you can copy and paste. Retyping them is a step too far, unless you have unlimited free time.

    yea Jed is very worthwhile

    Hi Jed, I like having clues there too, but copy-and-paste them from the online PDF, don’t try and type them in yourself!

    I have been working on a blogging tool that will do this automatically. It doesn’t work for Belzebub yet, but I’m sure that I could get it to work without too much trouble.

    You can have a look at it here…

    Hi Jed, Just had a better look and the Beelzebub crossword doesn’t seem to be available online, so my idea a bit of a non-starter then!
